My friend can make them in different aluminium or in titanium if I would like that. So I’m not the least worried about the quality.

Joe's advice is important too. I'd be looking for 6082-T4 aluminium or something equivalent, from a strength and durability point of view.
Also, the post treatment will make or break your home-made arm. A good anodising is essential.

I think you will find that the material if you have to purchase only a small piece and the minimum for anodizing for a few pieces will get the price right up there with one purchased from the states. Dont you know anyone who is traveling there from the US? We do have a dealer in Sweden who just ordered some parts, you might want to check our dealer page.
Just my 2 cents
